Merit RADB support

That's an inherent problem with the IRR system (and I am still a big
proponent).  There is every operational benefit from entering an object. The
object augments policy.  But, what is the benefit of removing an object?  It
doesn't operationally benefit (size of prefix lists, etc. aside) anything.
I would prefer that people who proxy register, also proxy delete when
services are terminated. If wishes were horses....

Apologies to Merit RADB, it was BGPmon that never responds.  Merit RADB
actually does respond--my frustration is more about the difficulty in
getting them to delete stale objects that others registered, although I was
finally able to get my objects cleaned up.
